KYV FARM is a certified organic family farm in Northeast Florida, founded and actively run by Francisco Arroyo and Vivian Bayona .
Our mission is to provide a fresh and healthy alternative for the community. The farm produces over 60 different varieties of certified organic vegetables, fruits and herbs, without conventional pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.
The farm is community-oriented, with a full seasonal calendar of events, including tours, workshops, and farm feasts. KYV Farm hosts an apprenticeship program, in which people come from around the world to learn about organic community farming.
Our farming practices include:
- Crop Rotation
- Use of cover crops as green manure
- Compost and mulches
- Use of proven organic seeds
- Sustainable irrigation systems
- Use of cold frames to start and extend our season
